The Farm at Cape Kidnappers

Located on the North Island’s dramatic east coast atop 6,000 rolling acres of pasture land with the look and feel of a working farm, The Farm features 22 cottage suites all with large porches overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Also features an award-winning golf course and indulgent spa treatment facilities, gourmet restaurant, 50-foot heated pool, fitness center, library, and wine cellar tasting room.

On the exterior, the Lodge resembles a cluster of farm buildings. Local materials are incorporated into graciously scaled rooms full of natural light and unexpected treasures.  The Farm can be reached by daily flights from either Auckland or Wellington into Napier Airport, then a short car ride to the hotel. A sister property to Kauri Cliffs, the resort is ideally located to explore the area’s numerous wineries and outdoor activities.

Comfort and ease are at a premium, with each room taking on a character of its own while harkening back to the rural feeling of the New Zealand sheep station and wine country. Spacious cottages, each with breathtaking views, open to large porches overlooking a stunning 180 degree panorama of the Pacific, farm, and golf course. The Farm features 10 Hilltop Suites, 8 Ridge Suites, and 4 Lodge Suites, plus one four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage.

The par 71 championship golf course measures 7,119 yards or 6,510 meters and will challenge every skill level. Designed by Tom Doak, currently the hottest architect in golf, the course is ranked Number 27 in the world by Golf Magazine, the world’s leading authority on the subject. Additional pursuits include farm tours, hiking, wine tours, fly fishing, hot air ballooning, Art Deco tour, horseback riding, river kayaking, and more.
